‘Lion Whisperer’ cuddles big cats in incredible video

South African Zoologist Kevin Richardson teamed up with GoPro to create this astonishing video.

The fearless ‘Lion Whisperer’ is seen cuddling and rolling around with the big cats in the South African plains.

 

GoPro HERO3+ video cameras were strapped to the backs of lions and Richardson to produce some remarkable results.

 

We get a first person point of view of the huge beasts leaping on Richardson as if he is one of their own.

 

GoPro jokingly put a warning on the video to “not attempt what you see in this video unless the final item on your bucket list is, "Get eaten by lions."”

 

Richardson campaigns for the preservation of the African lion population, it has seen a dramatic decline and is now only at 20% of what is once was.

 

The originality of the piece is sure to attract attention and the video is currently at 4,274,727 views.
